David Lee Ray Jr., 30, pleaded guilty to three counts of illegal exposure of children to drug manufacturing materials and chemicals, and a single count of manufacturing meth, said Leslie Robinson, 16th Circuit assistant solicitor.

Three children, ages 3, 2, and 9 months, were removed from the home on Deep Hollow Court in December 2013 when the drugs were found. Social services officials took custody of the children afterward.
